The Story

Dennis, a brown and white six year old pit bull terrier bull dog mix was rescued from death row at Hillsborough County Animal Shelter in July of last year. Now fighting cancer, sweet friendly "talking" Dennis is so happy to be given a second chance at life with Adam Keehnle and his pack of furry siblings, but he needs surgery as soon as possible.

Dennis has suffered from chronic ear infections that created an open wound on his neck that would not heal in spite of continuous antibiotics. Then to make matters worse, Dennis developed a lump on his leg that was diagnosed as cancer. Dennis needs both the life saving surgery for his cancer and a bilateral TECA surgery to remove both of his eardrums and the infection so he can be healthy for the first time in his life.  The surgeries cost $3000.00 but we only need $1300.00 more to pay the bill.

Dennis is functionally deaf but doesn't seem to know it. He is a happy go lucky 60 pound lap dog who "talks" to everyone he meets. Please help us give him the gift of health in this New Year!!

Dennis got his staples out and is on the mend. The picture is Dennis TODAY!! He is now cancer free with his ear infections gone! He is on his last round of meds so I raised the total to reflect that. Please help us find him a FUREVER home. He is a special boy who needs a special family that understands his special needs. Many thanks to his foster, Adam for taking such good care of him throughout his surgeries and recuperation. And to all of you who have shared and prayed and donated. Lisa and Adam and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and of course Dennis thanks you too. He sends a big sloppy Dennis kiss to all of you.

Update as of Feb 16..sorry it took so long but we waited to update until pictures came from the surgeon. Dennis has had 2 surgeries since this original post. The first one was to remove the cancer on his leg and to resolve his chronic ear infections in both ears. The surgery was successful until a week ago when the neck wound reappeared. Dr. Oakes took him back into surgery to correct what turned out to be yet another issue for Dennis. He found Dennis to have had additional trauma in his earlier life that destroyed his saliva glands on that side of his face. All seemed to be going well post op until yesterday when Dennis tore all of his stiches out. Adam and I rushed him back to Dr.Oakes who stapled the wound shut. We are praying that this is the last unfortunate incident for Dennis. Please continue to donate and share and pray for him. We will see Dr. Oakes next week and update again.
